We stopped in for dinner and sat at the bar for a bit before we got seated. Very friendly bartender and patrons. We, of course, had steak and it was well prepared, the baked potato was a little undercooked, but the salad was very fresh. The service was also great.

Ordered the basic burger done to medium with cheese and bacon. I wanted to skip the fries and order the wild rice soup instead. We had six people in our party, including a 2 year old and a 6 year old. When the order came, my burger plate had fries and coleslaw on it. I thought maybe the kitchen just... More

My husband, sister and I came to the steakhouse on New Years Eve to do some karaoke and have some drinks. We played a round of pool and met some interesting people. They have a little area to step outside for smokers. The bartender was nice and the alcohol was potent. We had a great time! I loved singing, "More... More

A crowd of us went to the Ely Steak House for dinner while staying at a local resort. There were a dozen rowdy guys in the crowd. We had great meals and service there. Many of us returned on separate occasions.

It was ok. My steak was very thin and chewy which always lets me down for the price. I was looking forward to something more. The fish was good... maybe that is their specialty? The atmosphere was very fun and the server was super nice too. Good environment, but if you are a foodie... may want to keep on trucking.

They prepare your steak very well. The flavor is excellent. Service was good and the pricing is fair. It's really the only place in Ely for a good steak dinner that won't break the bank. This was my third time dinning there and I will certainly return when in Ely.

Thank Tom S
